    The only time I see him on television now is when they show the James Bond film "Diamonds are Forever" since he played the character of American billionaire Willard White. I haven't seen one of his sausage commercials in ages. RIP Jimmy Dean.

    Anybody who knows good SOSSITCH loves Jimmy Dean. I was wondering why he wasn't in the commercials anymore, I guess his health problems were too bad. RIP Jimmy.

    And in tribute to Mr. Dean, I present this nugget of pure gold:

    Customer complaint call that led to the reinstatement of the 16 oz roll.

    After that call went viral, the Jimmy Dean company gave the people what they wanted.

    I hope not. I have family that lives in Opelika, from my mother's side.

    Anyway, I remember the song "Big Bad John" was one of my dad's favorites.

    Was he the one that did the song, "Biiiiiiiiiiiiiig John, Big Bad John!"?
    I know the name of the band is that, but I'm wondering about that old song?
    Anyway, I remember this guy, RIP. Another great celebrity taken away from us.
